Do you think guns should be banned in the USA?

asked Mar 28 in Debate by human
Here in the UK there are laws restricting guns from being bought. Unless you have a license, you can’t legally own a gun. This means that gun violence rates in the UK are much lower than the US.

I think that guns in the US should be made illegal. Lots of people say, ‘How will we defend ourselves if they take away our guns?’ and the answer is simple - if you take away all the guns, there’s no need to defend yourself because all the other people don’t have any guns either.

What do you think?

They should probably be made a little harder to obtain or slightly less dangerous.

I live in the US and I believe they should not be banned, I believe in hunting your own food so.

I have made my point on this before (search for the post Change My Mind- Or Fight Me). It think they should not be banned. If there was a gun ban, there would still be criminals with guns, they don't follow laws and would still get them probably on the black market. But for the law-abiding citizens, you take the guns away and they will not be able to defend themselves.

Maybe they could ban the guns and then go to everyone’s houses and search for the guns they own and take away the guns? Yeah, the black market would have lots of guns for sale after the ban so guns would be pretty easy for criminals to obtain. I’m basically making points against myself now but I guess the government could figure that out, idk.

The govenment still has not found many criminal hideouts, where they could stash the guns. And the black market and dark web have been around for years, it is unlikely to go away or for the government to shut it down.

That’s true. You have a lot of good arguments and I have none lol. I guess we’ll just agree to disagree?
commented Mar 30 by Lesbian Wolf Furry (10,370 points)
Sounds good to me. One of the things I talk about a lot is that everyone has there own opinions, just respect them. I can see your side of the argument too, it would be better if gus we'e gone, I just think that a ban wouldn't be able to do so.

Yeah, I guess a ban on guns wouldn’t really work, people would always find a way to get around rules like that.

I don’t knows bout me, I don’t like to have an opinion on this matter. But my dad and brother enjoy shooting targets/doves, and I don’t have a problem with that. I mean, I don’t really like hunting, would never do it myself, but it’s enjoyable to them, and I wouldnt wanna take that away from them.
